The Taylor County Commission is once again considering dipping into its excess sales tax revenue to fund equipment purchases at Doctors’ Memorial Hospital (DMH) after the hospital’s board of directors presented a list of capital needs totaling $3 million.

Although a specific figure was not settled upon by the commission during a workshop held Monday, the board did agree to place the item on the agenda for July 22 meeting to consider holding two public hearings on the hospital’s request.
